I mean what the hell.

This would severely affect the electronic market, and is for a stupid reason.

I don't give a damn about the console, but banning it from the market is ridiculous.

I'm guessing this judge used to work for Microsoft before they fired him.

Finally, to add insult to injury, when Microsoft argued that consumers would be forced to fall back on PlayStation and Wii consoles, the judge said that Sony and Nintendo were perfectly capable of meeting demand. Ouch.

What an asshole.

Patent laws need to be rethought. All they are, are businesses obtaining as many as they can and suing those who infringe on it.

This article is retarded, how would this affect Motorola's sales in any way? Pretty sure we got nothing to worry about.

Eh. It's stupid, but whatever. Personally I wouldn't notice. Besides, now I can finally play L4D on playstation, or halo. Personally, I would buy geometry wars instantly if it were on PSN.

Yeah, Nintendo and Sony could make as much money as Microsoft. What's so insulting about a guy saying that two companies can make as much money as one company? I think it's just Microsoft/360 fans finding things to complain about.

Ah well. The Xbox won't get banned. Obama has much more important things to focus on. Like banning the internet.

He's saying that due to the lack there will be of Xboxes, Sony and Nintendo will be able to sell new consols to the people who can't buy Xboxes anymore

This thread should be locked anyway. It's getting filled up with PC elitists and PS3 fanboys.

Fun fact: I wanted my friend to play a cool game, but because his subscription ran out it wouldn't let me download any demos. Kinda pissed me off. They just disconnect you from EVERYTHING? Jeez, thats just stupid.

Seriously, that's your solution? Come on, you would have to be a fucking cheap ass bastard not to afford the $50 for Xbox Live, plus it's not like anyone is forcing you to buy the service anyway, unless you really miss playing COD that much, lol. I mean, I think that MLP: FIM is stupid as hell, but I'm not going to go around here or anywhere else and say ban that shit like the plague.

Immoral =/= illegal, I would've thought that you would know that, but I guess not.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

I would rather not argue....but the temptation is too great. First of all, asking for money for something that should be free is bad enough, but with $50 I could buy a new game. Or a chair with wheels *Whee!* Aside from that Xbox's ONLY purpose for existing is multiplayer. Exclusives? Get outta here, we have servers that never screw up apparently. So already they cut you off from the real "meat" of owning the console. Secondly, NO DEMOS if you didn't pay. Thats just stupid! Help out the devs. man! At least have demos still accessible.
Nobody's forcing you sure, but now you have a console in your house that is missing HALF of it's functionality.

Banning Xbox wrong? YES! Is it karmic justice if they DO get banned? Arguable.

Criticize it all you want. But a nation-wide ban?
You just made it out like I wasn't allowed to criticize it... what?

I know it's a stupid reason to ban the system, but it'd be good karma for a company that makes people pay for what should be free service. That's my point, I'm sticking by it... They also gotta pay extra money for things like dlc... it's greedy, it's immoral.

Bro, it's $60 per year. If you are having so much trouble affording that, then I would suggest you sign up for welfare.
